On the occasion of the 2010 AQEP conference, the leaders of the RÉCIT national service of the social universe presented the site Societies and territories, talked about the new features to come and gave some avenues of exploitation of activities on TBI. Here's a look at what to expect this year.

Societies and territories, it is first and foremost a social content site offering texts adapted to primary school students. To create this site, the managers of the RÉCIT national service for the social universe were inspired by this observation: when you search for "histoire du Québec" or "Nouvelle-France" on Google, you cannot find really suitable content. to students of this age. This year, the website is getting a makeover. Its appearance will be more current, more colorful. We expect to go live around December.

The site deals with 15 companies according to 3 skills which will be further highlighted with the new version of the site: reading, interpreting and being open to diversity. It allows you to consult a company, compare two companies or analyze the change in a given company. To do this, we can consult primary sources, that is to say period texts, and also texts written by historians for primary school students. These constitute the majority of the texts on the site. There are also around a thousand royalty-free images on the site to illustrate this.

After the redesign of the site, we will find updates to the texts to meet the requirements of the document on the progress of learning, more images and even video capsules from sources such as the NFB, the Radio-Canada archives and the series " My memory is spinning », Family films digitized with the support of the Historia channel.

Another novelty will allow teachers to create an account in order to collect their favorite texts, assemble files and other media, then publish their page for their students. This feature is scheduled for later this year, somewhere in April.

In the second part of the workshop, the facilitators show ideas for using the site with the TBI and working on the primary sources. For example, the teacher can copy part of text into a document and ask students to identify difficult words. He can also insert an image of a seigneury and draw the important lines by changing color to highlight certain characteristics. In short, it is to use the resources that are accessible (on Societies and territories or from other sources) and take advantage of the tools and interactivity provided by BITs.

Infobourg will inform you of the launch of the new version of the site later this year.
